As I already mentioned. You can't use chmod and chown on a fat file system. Even if you mount it so all files have rwx permissions, and you are the owner, the ./configure script or the make files may try using the chmod command. If it does, it will fail. Either use another external drive with a linux filesystem, or untar the package to your home directory. It probably isn't very large. After the "sudo make install" phase, you can delete this directory.

Do you think it is possible to reformat the sdcard to an ext file system so i have the appropriate privileges? I might be asking wacky questions but there has to be a way around this.
